Product Number: #1239

Description: 4" Mini Plush Buddies Frog With Shirt

Industry: Education

What it was purchased for: A community college was looking for a giveaway item to have at their booth for the upcoming College Fairs they will be exhibiting at. After discussing the project with their sales representative, they were very interested in having a plush animal giveaway. At first they were interested in the #1267; their sports mascot is a frog and our shirt colors matched their school colors perfectly. Their buyer however, was concerned about the storage space for the products, both at the booth and between events. They were sent samples of the new #1239 - 4" Mini Plush Buddies Frog with Shirt as a space-conscious alternative. The buyers loved it! The size difference was just what they needed and the mini plush was just as attractive and eye-catching as the 6" Frog. Better yet, it is half the weight.

How it was distributed: The college decided to put a sign-up sheet next to their displayed Mini Plush Buddies. They also included a sign that read, "Leap into Your Future with Us! Sign up for more information and take home a new friend!" Another way the giveaway was presented was as a mug stuffer, they placed some of the frogs inside their branded mugs. These mugs were given away to prospective students.

Result or ROI: Although people were not required to sign-up to receive the giveaway, simply having the giveaway next to the form increased sign-ups more than 60%. In addition to the direct results from the sign-up form, there were many other indirect successes attributed to this giveaway. The word-of-mouth about the plush giveaway brought people looking for their booth specifically and increased the questions asked regarding their sports program. The small size made this item easy to manage in bulk and easy to giveaway.
